the conservatives considering a senate run is congressman paul broun. just this week he said president obama is upholding the soviet constitution. the right is leaning right again, and we're losing people. we're better off with people like saxby chambliss who are trying to be reasonable. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." you can see the snow behind me here at the white house is like one of those things you turn upside down. how about conspiracy theories? it turns out it depends on your party affiliation whether you believe in them. you're probably not surprised to hear more republicans than democrats are birthers, but a new poll shows nearly two-thirds of republicans, 64%, believe the president is hiding some specific information about where he was born. how about fixing elections? more than a third of democrats think george w. bush's supporters probably rigged the election in ohio back in 2004 through voter fraud, including a majority of african-americans. about the same number of republicans, 36%, think obama's supporters did the same thing to win last november, although
this week that the republican party top to bottom has to start taking barack obama seriously. he means to change america in fundamental ways and along the lines of justice as he sees it. the proper response to such a man is not that he's a muslim or a kenyan. those charges were meant to marginalize him, but they didn't hurt him. they damaged republicans. it will take guts and unity to fight him. can the gop just in washington now develop those things? i think it's a good charge to republicans. she's saying you've deluded yourself with these nonsensical charges of birtherism, and it's hurt you more than it's ever hurt him. >> i agree with you, peggy noonan is one of the smart ones. i don't agree with much of what she says, but i think she's a smart woman. the base isn't reading "the wall street journal" editorial page. they have been fed for 30, 40 years this sort of insanity and the belief that their views are absolutely right. that the idea of calling democrats marxists and socialists and being extreme on abortion, that's not just right, but fundamentally american. it's more american
? >> i think the imperial attitude is coming out of the obama white house. you saw this last week he came out with 23 executive orders related to guns and issues there. so i think we are going to continue to see this president over reach and do things that he wasn't able to do legislatively. >> this idea of executive orders does seem extraordinary. paul bagoalo working for president clinton stroke of the pen law of the land kind of cool. >> this is a president that i think has gone way beyond that in terms of the number of regulations that have come out under this administration in what are called significant regulations which have an impact of over $100 million. those are the things hurting our economy making it harder to get people back to work and making it harder for hard-working taxpayers. >> to be fair to president obama he's not the first to do this by any means even george washington did this, teddy roosevelt did many more nixon's wage and price control executive order. peace corps is an executive order. there is precedent. >> there is but if you go back to the founding fathers if
president obama to hit the road and talk about gun control in the next several days, if not weeks. the white house has said that he as well as vice president biden will continue to leave the white house, get out of d.c. and build up public support for the proposals that president obama unveiled several days ago. of course, those proposals include increasing and improving access to mental health services, reinstating the assault weapons ban and limiting high-capacity magazines as well as enacting universal background checks. common knowledge around here, craig, is that a lot of those have a good chance of actually getting passed through congress with the exception of that reinstatement of the assault weapons ban. senator dianne feinstein introduced a tough bill to ban assault weapons this week and even she said it will be a tough uphill battle and there is still fierce opposition in such a ban in congress and throughout the country, the nra has talked about that, as well. on friday, vice president biden kicked off the public campaign to rally public support for the stever gun me stiffer gun m
enough to be living with debates that were not cruel reality shows. every week, there were debates among the democratic candidates. barack obama embodied change. it seemed he brought into politics a generation of young people and minorities who never thought of the electoral system as a vehicle for change. so many people saw in him the possibility of change that would come quickly. my sense is that it is so corroded that we need to take back a government that has been rigged against working people, ordinary people, the poor. we need to understand it will take more than one election cycle to bring about fundamental change in this country. it will take wind at the back of the president and political system to bring about change. president obama -- this is not a political time when roosevelt lived in. the labor movements are not as strong. today there was a story about the tea party move -- losing its mojo. we're seeing overreach that has led people to this tipping point moment where millions of people have said enough. the obscene inequality in this country colliding with downward mobility
. >>> president obama will be inaugurated for his second term this week which means that time is running out on the elevator picture to capitalize on the event with his commemorative watches. >> hi, i'm jack golden berg, president of obama watches. nice to meet you. since 2008 we have sold 30 obama watches. it's not that hard, he's the political rock star of the political world. the biggest watch is the barack around the clock. i wore one obama watch to the party, i wasn't planning to wear anymore. the next day five friends called or e-mailed me and said, where can i get the obama watches. this is the new inaugural watch. okay. >> cool. >> okay. i brought you each a watch. this is the yes we can watch. don't worry, we have -- >> i need the time to pay taxes watch. >> okay. we can't find the other watch. it's here some place. i need $1 million in financing, to work on the new watch. this is called a flip watch. two watches in one. people don't buy watches anymore to talk about -- just to tell the time. they buy watches to tell something about themselves. so this watch, you could be -- in this
of the secretary of state. the insider reveals the moment that changed her relationship with president obama. an extraordinary look at secretary clinton's world. that is ahead. >>> it has been something of a good-bye tour for hillary clinton this week, testifying before congress, appearing at the president's inauguration. she is leaving the obama administration in just a few days. and the job that has transformed her image. for this extraordinary report, cnn's kate baldwin was allowed inside hillary clinton's world. >> this is the second home of one of the world's most iconic women. and we have been granted rare access as the country's top diplomat ends an unexpected four-year journey, working for the man with whom she once traded blows. bitter rivals, yet? >> i endorse him and throw my full support behind him. >> reporter: just as hillary clinton showed her support for president obama, obama showed his faith in clinton. >> i have no doubt that hillary clinton is the right person to lead our state department and to work with me in tackling this ambitious foreign policy agenda. >> what was hi
five, president obama and hillary clinton are parting ways. secretary clinton is leaving her job at the state department next week. the two sat down for an interview with 60 minutes. an exit interview of sorts. clinton talked about how she felt it was her duty to take the job while the president wanted to highlight her selfless service. >>> the line of talk around hillary clinton is centered around what is next. she says she just wants some down time, she's ready to leave washington behind, but as we have all come to know, don't ever count hillary out. >> this is not the first time hillary clinton seemed to say good-bye. >> i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger, and more secure. >> when you just knew she'd be back to say hello. she launched herself back in the days of the nerdy circular glasses as the woman who could take tradition and crack it like a nut. she and bill clinton met and fell in love at yale. then in 1974, she moved to arkansas to teach making partner at the rose law firm five years later. she kept working after her husband wa
this week? >> i was surprised. we didn't, you know, we know that president obama had referred to the film earlier sort of lightly, but we didn't know that the secretary had seen the film. so when we, you know, we wished we'd heard the name of the film under happier circumstances than those hearings, but, yeah, we were surprised and flattered that she invoked the film. >> well, it's not just moviegoers that have noticed your film. the world is taking notice. iran has announced that argo is a fabrication and the government is sponsoring now their own version of those events. what do you make of that? >> well, i think it's an interesting development. i think ben and i both feel that the film must have hit a nerve in some way with the iranian regime if they feel compelled to respond to it. it's -- it's a -- some of the same cast of characters that were behind the 444 days are some of the same people that are behind the iranian regime now. in a way, it's not surprising they would feel compelled to just sort of contradict some of the story that we told. but it will be interesting to see what th
to make the choice. >> let's listen to something president obama said in his inauguration speech this week. >> a decade of war is now ending. an economic recovery has begun. america's possibilities are limitless. for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands. youth and drive, diversity and openness, an endless capacity for risk, and a gift for reinvention. my fellow americans, we are made for this moment. and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together. >> the president there sounding upbeat. acknowledging it's been a tough time. there are challenges obviously ahead. how is he doing do you think? a lot of this comes from the leader in terms of the spirit of the country. in terms of its ability to resurge, if you like. is obama the right man? do you like what you see for maybe the second term obama already? >> i love the man. i voted for him originally. i actually went to a meeting with 18 of the top executives, the guys that started google. and in the meeting, everybody was a big supporter. i said, mr. president, i love your heart. i absolutely believe i
constitution that was recently approved in a referendum. there is no indication that president obama mor president morsi is going to acquiesce so you can expect several more weeks and months perhaps of street fighting. >>> in this country more peaceful scenes as large numbers of people took to the streets in washington and other cities today to keep the spotlight on gun violence and to back the obama spragsadministration's pu stricter gun laws. gun rights supporters are finding ways to demonstrate their own passions over the issue. nbc news white house correspondent kristen welker joins us now with more. >> reporter: lester, good evening. today's rally was organized by advocacy groups, one million moms for gun control. it was a day filled with emotion but also reality. the nation is still sharply divided when it comes to guns. a ground swell of support for stiffer gun laws and thousands rallied in washington to call for change in the wake of the newtown shooting, holding signs bearing the names of those lost and speaking their minds. >> no more. it's time to do something about it. >> we
] and not have to worry about the law. obama was very interesting. in my defense, a week before or two weeks before the election in l.a., i routed column suffering from myself rather severely, to use a romney word, from some of my colleagues on the right to have defected to obama and i named them. i said i was going down with the mccain ship because i knew it was going out and i would not waver. i never imagined i would support obama over mccain. i was very strongly for mccain. i thought he was a very good man. he did not run a very strong campaign. we seem to have a habit of doing that. but here's what was interesting about obama. if you remember the transition, he made very centrist appointments. for example, he kept the gates at the fence. he picked geithner for treasury, who had worked hand in glove with the bush administration through the financial crisis. he picked hillary as secretary of state. blogger was one of the major advisers. volcker was one of the major red visors. when he ran in 2008, he ran as a roar short chest. he was not a very disturbing the radical candidate. that was t
heard this week tell you about the president that barack obama want os to be? >> i think like all re-elected presidents, he sees a mandate, an expanded vision of a mandate from the electoral victory. but he realizes time is sho. and ihink he does not show the same level of patience with the congress that he showed in his first term, that certain in patients, a realization that probably this is his best year in all likelihood, if history is any guide. i think he's been more sure footed. and i think a happier warrior as i said earlier. and i think the people, dennis mcdonough who has chosen to be his chief of staff is somebody whom he likes, whom he is comfortable with, it is very much in his comfort zone. >> uh-huh. >>and probly the only person ever to be white house chief of staff who was a safety for john gagleardi, the winningest coach in college football history. >> i knew we have some trivia. >> actually, many cornerbacks were also chiefs of staff. >> he, as my colleague peter baker said, it's stirred, not shakenment so he is has not taken new people from outside. >> i mean i sai
one or two, and then we'll go around the table. especially interested to hear you talk about obama create the legacy. earlier this week, as you probably know, speaker boehner spoke on society saying the obama administration wants to, quote, annihilate the republican party, and shove it in, quote, the dust pan of history. do you agree with that interpretation of obama's inaugural address? >> i believe that republicans and democrats both have the design to try to become dominant, and so the republicans would certainly like to decrease the power of the democratic party and the democratic party would like to decrease the power of the republican party. that's what politics works, and maybe speaker boehner, because he gets bossed around by fellow republicans, maybe he's a little sensitive to those comments. >> let me ask you about your role, talking about helping create a legacy. you've been involved in philanthropy. do you have plans for 2014 congressional cycle, sir? >> well, no i'm not running if that's what you mean. [laughter] >> i mean -- >> [inaudible] >> take a filing break now.
to be voted on next week in the state committee, president obama would have received four electoral votes from the four districts he won, mitt romney, seven electoral votes from the districts he won, plus the two at large votes for winning the most districts. that means barack obama who won 51% of the popular vote in virginia would get 31% of the electoral votes, and mitt romney who won 48%, a minority of the popular vote in virginia would get 69% of its electoral votes. in michigan, president obama got 54% of the popular vote, and all 16 of the state's electoral votes under the change presented, president obama would have won five, while mitt romney would have won nine electoral votes for his nine districts. president obama would get an extra two electoral votes for winning the popular vote. very generous, president obama won 54% of the popular vote in michigan would then get 44% of the electoral votes. mitt romney, who won 45% of the vote would get 56% of the electorals. in pennsylvania, president obama received 52% of the -- i'm sorry, i meant pennsylvania, not florida, earlier. and all 20
important background checks are to keep guns out of the wrong hands. >>> president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton are parting ways. clinton is leaving her job at the state department next week. they sat down together for an interview with "60 minutes." and we'll have some of that for you in 30 minutes. >>> for much of the country this morning, it is cold. the national weather service is warning of bitterly cold conditions. this weekend across much of the northeast, the mid-atlantic, and the midwest, several inches of snow fell yesterday on parts of the ohio valley, then pushed through to the east coast. the system brought an arctic blast that forecasters say could be deadly. warming centers are open now in pennsylvania, new york, and new jersey. some superstorm sandy victims there still, believe it or not, don't have basic utilities to keep warm. and the tennessee valley and the carolinas are also on ice. freezing rain is blamed for more than 200 wrecks around charlotte and the airport there had to cancel 100 flights. here's how you can tell it's really, really cold. a po
especially what will happen at the end of the week, hillary clinton will appear with president obama on "60 minutes," the first interview he has done on anyone that is not michelle obama. not only is she running, she will use that as her endorsement from president obama. he won't come out and endorse her directly, but if you are on the sideline like us who will he endorse hillary clinton or joe biden it looks like hillary. >> andrea: he said nice things about joe biden. president obama said he was an extraordinary partner. if you're joe biden are you saying i feel left out? he is doing a "60 minutes" interview with her. did they cut a deal? >> bob: first, let me say that dana went out of her way to avoid giving the name toffee that didn't like "god bless america" and it was terry moran. she didn't want to say anything about it at all. i decided for the sake of fairness and protect her -- >> dana: why is that fair? >> eric: that is the definition of being beckeled. >> bob: i thought it was important to do it because it was something i thought you held back. >> dana: i was trying to be nice.
